Mu­ti­lated cat dis­cov­ered in play­ground

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion fol­low­ing the dis­cov­ery of a mu­ti­lated cat in a play­ground in Maid­stone.

The fluffy gin­ger cat was found dead at a recre­ation ground in Man­gravet Av­enue in Shep­way on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 1.

Of­fi­cers are en­cour­ag­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call 01622 604100, quot­ing YY/3654/18.

At this stage, po­lice are not link­ing the death to any sim­i­lar in­ci­dents that have been re­ported over re­cent months, when cats were found dis­mem­bered in the Maid­stone area in Oc­to­ber, Novem­ber and on New Year’s Eve. Those deaths are feared to have been car­ried out by the so-called UK Cat Killer.

In 2015, of­fi­cers launched Op­er­a­tion Takahe to in­ves­ti­gate a se­ries of an­i­mal killings in the Croy­don area. Since then hun­dreds of an­i­mals have been dis­cov­ered across the coun­try.
